Required Skills

You live at the intersection of stories and code. You’re most comfortable with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, but if you have to make something in Xcode you’ll make it happen or you’ll figure it out.  You care about everything with your name on it being pixel perfect for no other reason than it just has to.  You love backend technologies and when someone says “we should build this Node/Unix/Mongo” you say “that would be awesome, but before we do that, why?” Any language, any stack, anytime as long as it’s the right one.

Required Experience

  • Bachelor’s degree or relevant experience
  • Minimum of 4+ years applicable experience, preferably within an agency
  • Frontend –  Mobile (iOS / Android)
  • Backend – Python, Ruby, C, Scala, etc.
  • Creative vision and ability to think out-the-box

  • Proven ability to develop and maintain high level professional relationships with senior level clients, colleagues and vendors
  • Able to rapidly adapt to changes and tight deadlines
  • Extremely detail oriented
  • Strong organizational skills
